Antonianum, 81/4 (2006) p. 633-653
Summary:In three steps, this article tries to shed light on the «mystery» of the seventh day of Creation (Gen 2:1 3). The first section of the article examines the specific function of the seventh day within the seven day structure of the creation narrative in Gen 1:1–2:3. In the second, central section, key phrases in Gen 2:1 3 are analyzed from the exegetical theological point of view. The third and concluding part connects the seventh day of creation with Jesus's act of salvation and resurrection, i. e., with the first day of the Christian week.
